    Marknadsstaten: om vad den svenska staten gör med marknaderna - och marknaderna med staten2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under de senaste decennierna har många verksamheter förts över från stat och kommun till företag som agerar på marknader. Men den svenska staten är fortfarande djupt engagerad i marknaderna. Den har utvecklat en särskild marknadspolitik och en fjärdedel av de statliga myndigheterna har som huvuduppgift att organisera marknader. Samtidigt är marknadspolitiken abstrakt och svårfångad, och myndigheterna arbetar främst med mjuka och otydliga påverkansmetoder. Trots alla insatser finns det en utbredd tro på att marknader fungerar bäst om de lämnas ifred. Statens politik ger utrymme för andra att utöva makt. Genom djupstudier av olika marknader åskådliggör boken hur myndigheterna samarbetar med säljarna och hur säljarna får en stark position. Boken riktar sig till alla som är intresserade av den moderna statens omvandling: lärare och forskare vid universitet och högskolor, politiker, tjänstemän i stat och näringsliv och den samhällsintresserade medborgaren.

    Makten över stadens offentliga rum: Professionerna och hur de modernistiska idéerna vann kampen om stadsplaneringen2017In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 119, no 3, p. 441-463Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modernist ideas were written into the building code of 1931 and increased over timewhere traditional cities were banned and supposed to be turned down. How managedmodernists this in the critical juncture. One of their proponents was StockholmsByggnadsförening, where builders, contractors and private and public plannersand architects meet. My questions are how modernist architects could imposethe views of Byggnadsföreningen and if their activities in this organization couldexplain why modernist ideas so fast could impose building code and legislation.I found that it was a self-amplifying process where central modernist architectsmanaged to reach leading positions after 1924 when the organization implementedshort periods for members of the board. This was preceded by a decline of the organizationduring WWI and a self-eroding process for ideas of traditional city-planningwhere modernist architects challenged them with effectivity-arguments thatclamed modernist ideas were scientific and traditional ideas outdated.

    Abstract [sv]

    Högskolestiftelser. Förslaget att driva svenska universitet i stiftelseform ­öppnar för bolagisering. Men det är ingen riktig utredning, utan en politisk pamflett utan ­eftertanke. Privatisering av universitet hotar både oberoendet, forskningskvaliteten och samhällsnyttan, skriver 36 forskare vid svenska högskolor och universitet.

    Politik, förvaltning eller mittemellan?: En studie av kommunal metagovernance2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersöker hur horisontella governancestrukturer påverkar olika mekanismer för metagovernance. Fokus för undersökningen är Eskilstuna kommun som valt att förändra synen på styrning från vertikal till horisontell, från government till governance. Då metagovernance innebär indirekt och informell styrning i pågående processer studerades just en pågående process där tjänstemän under nätverksliknande former skulle utforma en handlingsplan. Uppdraget var initierat från den politiska nivån.

    Undersökningen är uppdelad i två delar. Den första delen är en allmänt inriktad respondentundersökning som handlar om de förändrade strukturerna i organisationen. Den andra delen är en fallstudie som baseras på deltagande observationer samt intervjuer och handlar om förekomsten av metagovernance i en specifik policyprocess.

    Efter undersökningen visade det sig att respondentundersökningen och fallstudien genererade lite olika resultat. Sett till fallstudien hade inte den horisontellt baserade styrningen påverkat förutsättningen för metagovernance och att tjänstemännen i hög grad anteciperar sina politikers viljor samt att rollfördelningen under processen har varit tydlig.

    Den mer allmänt inriktade respondentundersökningen visade däremot att den horisontella strukturen har komplicerat förhållandet mellan politik och förvaltning, gjort rollerna otydligare och att de politiska nämnderna fått en försvagad ställning till förmån för höga tjänstemän och även för kommunstyrelsen.

    Skillnaderna i resultaten förklaras till stor del av egenskaper som rör det specifika fallet som studerats. I och med att metagovernance via antecipering förekom krävdes ingen ytterligare styrning och i och med detta aktualiserades inte heller de problematiska strukturer och rollfördelningar som respondentundersökningen visar på.

    Typical situations for managers in the Swedish public sector: cluster analysis of working conditions using the job demands resources model2012In: International Public Management Journal, ISSN 1096-7494, E-ISSN 1559-3169, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 100-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Managers in many public domains have to meet major challenges today, which is why it is essential to focus on their working conditions in order to develop a sustainable situation. In the present study, the aim was to explore different types of managerial situations and how they discriminate in health, motivation, and performance outcomes. Using the job demands-resources model as a framework, four demands and three resources were included in a cluster analysis in order to answer the research question. In total, 548 managers in Sweden participated, including heads of department, middle managers, firstline managers, team leaders, and functional managers. The most important finding was that the eight clusters of managerial situations that were found discriminated in a distinct way against each other regarding health, motivation, and performance. The results can be used as guidance for organizational intervention as both very satisfactory and very unsatisfactory situations are identified.

    Systematic exploration of scenario spaces2016In: Foresight, ISSN 1463-6689, E-ISSN 1465-9832, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 59-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - Scenarios have become a vital methodological approach in business as well as in public policy. When scenarios are used to guide analysis and decision-making, the aim is typically robustness and in this context we argue that two main problems at scenario set level is conservatism, i.e. all scenarios are close to a perceived business-as-usual trajectory and lack of balance in the sense of arbitrarily mixing some conservative and some extreme scenarios. The purpose of this paper is to address these shortcomings by proposing a methodology for generating sets of scenarios which are in a mathematical sense maximally diverse. Design/methodology/approach - In this paper, we develop a systematic methodology, Scenario Diversity Analysis (SDA), which addresses the problems of broad span vs conservatism and imbalance. From a given set of variables with associated states, SDA generates scenario sets where the scenarios are in a quantifiable sense maximally different and therefore best span the whole set of feasible scenarios. Findings - The usefulness of the methodology is exemplified by applying it to sets of storylines of the emissions scenarios of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This ex-post analysis shows that the storylines were not maximally diverse and given the challenges ahead with regard to emissions reduction and adaptation planning, we argue that it is important to strive for diversity when developing scenario sets for climate change research. Originality/value - The proposed methodology adds significant novel features to the field of systematic scenario generation, especially with regard to scenario diversity. The methodology also enables the combination of systematics with the distinct future logics of good intuitive logics scenarios.

    Consulting or holding to account?: The Swedish National Audit Office as an agent of change in public administration2017In: Statsvetenskaplig Tidskrift, ISSN 0039-0747, Vol. 119, no 1, p. 91-109Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the impact of the performance audits of a national audit office, Sweden’s Riksrevisionen, on the public administration it audits. It does so by investigating how the auditee perceives their relationship with the auditor in terms of accountability and consulting with the aim to explore the role of the national audit office as an agent of change in the entities of the public administration. Riksrevi- sionen is found to take a consulting approach in their performance audits and the stronger the relationship is perceived as consulting, the higher the propensity to change. The same relationship is found with regard to the accountability relationship when the accountability pressure is perceived internally in the organization. When the accountability pressure is external no relationship with change can be corroborated.

    RESILIENCE THINKING: LESSONS FOR PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION2016In: Public Administration, ISSN 0033-3298, E-ISSN 1467-9299, Vol. 94, no 2, p. 364-380Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The notion of resilience is rapidly gaining influence in public administration practice and research, but a more comprehensive resilience research agenda in public administration is yet to emerge. This article aims to clarify how experiences and potential contributions from social-ecological resilience research can inform resilience studies in public administration. By contrasting key components of the resilience paradigm and its policy prescriptions with established findings from public administration research, a set of key shortcomings of social-ecological resilience thinking are identified: (1) deterministic systems models; (2) simplified accounts of politics and policy; and (3) a lack of systematic and generalizable empirical studies. To avoid these shortcomings, it is suggested that public administration resilience studies should explore multiple and competing models for how resilience can be generated; analyse trade-offs between resilience and other values of public administration; avoid systems theoretical resilience models; and apply the notion of resilience in areas beyond crisis management.

    Vård och ideologi: Narkomanvården som politiskt slagfält2012Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this book is threefold: 1) to examine what kind of drug treatment that has been propagated by Swedish state authorities during the years 1960-2000, and the presuppositions about the character of drug misuse and treatment that this has been founded on; 2) to analyse state government of a treatment field that hasn’t really been governed according to earlier research; 3) to investigate the ideological dimension of the Swedish drug treatment field. The point of departure for the analysis is to study the drug treatment as an ideological project, something that allows an investigation of ideological standpoints in official reports and the parliamentary material, but also make an ideology analysis of the central bureaucracy’s management of the treatment homes possible.

    No undisputable and effective treatment method has been established since the problem was introduced in the middle of the 1960s, and the drug problem has continually been an excellent question for political quarrels and ideological positioning. Because of its role as a serious problem, the drug issue has been a suitable battlefield where everybody has had to acknowledge the legitimacy in discussing and trying to solve the problem. Thoughts on causes and suggestions for solutions have played a wide political field where anything from child care and family policy to pressure of taxation and the extension of the railway network have been discussed. Beyond the imperative agreement that a highly serious problem was discussed, politicians, bureaucrats and treatment suppliers have been able to present their own ideological visions of the good society and the good citizen.

    Earlier research has questioned the rationality of Swedish drug treatment’s methods and management and this project aims to problematize this picture. A focus on the treatment field’s ideological content shows us that politicians as well as bureaucrats have had clearly articulated opinions on the purpose of the treatment as well as its means. It is also shown that Swedish drug treatment has been the subject of rigorous ideological management, something that could contribute to a renewed interest in ideology analysis and hopefully also broaden scientific discussions on the goals and means of drug treatment and social care. The research results could ultimately benefit discussions on both a political and a treatment field level, as they aim to bring analytical tools to identify the ideological ballast included in all discussions on what is otherwise supposed to be purely technical issues.

    Public Sector Innovation as Governance Reform: A Comparative Analysis of Competitive and Collaborative Strategies in the Swedish Transport Sector2018In: Administration & Society, ISSN 0095-3997, E-ISSN 1552-3039Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The constraining impact of bureaucracy on creative problem solving has been a recurring theme in research on public innovation, and public actors increasingly seek to “steer” innovation through interactive spaces for collaboration and competition. This article examines this form of “meta-governance” in the case of the Swedish Transport Administration and reveals a pattern where the initial opening of arenas for innovation is followed by a countermovement toward organization. Findings suggest that the introduction of elements of organization, such as hierarchy, rules, and membership, in governance spaces is a key strategy for coming to grips with a new innovation promoting role.

    Statens roll i svensk krisberedskap: En idéanalys av den nationella strategin för skydd av samhällsviktig verksamhet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsens syfte är att undersöka hur statens roll i krisberedskapen påverkas av det resiliensperspektiv som utgör grunden i den nationella strategin för skydd av samhällsviktig verksamhet. Uppsatsens frågeställningar är: ”Vilken form tar sig statens makt gentemot det omgivande samhället?” och ”Vilket önskvärt tillstånd för statens roll i krisberedskapen uttrycks i strategin?” Med utgångspunkt i governance-teori skapas ett analysverktyg med idealtyper av statens roll i samhällsstyrningen. Det används sedan för att analysera strategin. Analysen kompletteras av en intervju med en informant som har kunskap om strategins innehåll och om arbetet att ta fram den. Analysen visar att staten använder sig av samverkan när det är nödvändigt, men behåller samtidigt stort inflytande över policyprocessen. Vidare är det få av dimensionerna där den önskvärda rollen för staten faller helt inom den ena eller den andra kategorin i analysverktyget – ofta finns det drag av såväl government som governance.

    Social citizenship rights and social insurance replacement rate validity: pitfalls and possibilities2013In: Journal of European Public Policy, ISSN 1350-1763, E-ISSN 1466-4429, Vol. 20, no 9, p. 1251-1266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The comparative analysis of welfare states has been greatly advanced by rights-based measurements of social provisions. Social insurance replacement rates have figured prominently here. Apparently, there is considerable confusion about the validity of replacement rates and their comparability across different datasets. The purpose of this study is to outline a refined institutional perspective in the comparative analysis of welfare states focusing on the character of social citizenship rights. We show that social insurance replacement rates from different datasets differ in their underlying theoretical framework for policy analysis and therefore capture different aspects of how welfare states secure the livelihood of citizens in periods of work incapacity. Analysing validity solely on the basis of replacement rate point estimates is therefore misleading. We show that the close focus on social citizenship rights and programmatic design in the Social Citizenship Indicator Programme (SCIP) carries great potential for causal welfare state analysis.

    Hierarchisation and fuzziness: The power of interlinked categories in urban planning2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we ask how categories enable and constrain action in complex and long-term processes of municipal urban planning. Whereas previous studies to a large extent have focused on the conditions for corporations and their products, we develop theoretical insights about categorisation from the more scarcely investigated empirical context of the public sector. By an in-depth investigation of how the Swedish municipality of Varberg managed and organized large, complex urban planning changes, we show how two significantly different but closely interlinked categories simultaneously enabled and limited the scope and focus of these large-scale changes. More specifically we identify two distinct categories – one “project category” used to organize the specific urban planning process, and one “vision category” developed to govern the municipality as a whole – and explore how they influence one another and how they both individually and together shape the focus and scope of the change process. Through these two categories the complex and long-term planning is made sense of and is given structure and steerage in terms of both generative capabilities and constraints. The findings of the study of Varberg open up for further reflections about how categorisation creates power and action capabilities and its implications on democratic processes. Organisational categories, when they are taken on-board, are often perceived as natural and neutral and are valued because they decrease “noise” and give impetus for municipal development. Our study shows the need to also ask questions about what are sorted out and excluded through such processes of categorisations and what actor groups in society may not be allowed to make their voices heard and to influence such change processes.

    Värdeladdad organisering: kategoriers betydelse för stadsutvecklingsarbete2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of this report is the organising of on-going urban developments taking place within the municipality of Varberg. Large, public initiatives on urban planning often run over long time periods, involve multiple actors in society, and are characterised by uncertainty and lack of information. With the help of organisation theory on social categories we show how room for manoeuvre and conditions for activity are created in the on-going developments in Varberg. Our analysis highlights in particular two categories that are governing the urban planning of the municipality: (a) three change processes are organised into one single “City development project” and (b) the overarching governance is articulated through a vision statement for the municipality to become the creative centre of the west coast in year 2025. Categories play a dual role as they both enable and constrain organizational as well as individual behaviour. More specifically, the study shows how some projects, such as the sub-project about the new residential neighbourhood West Port (Västerport) by the sea, and some ideas, such as the assumption that urban development leads creativity are highlighted and prioritised as a consequence of the categories identified. However, the study also reveals how, simultaneously, other projects and issues are downplayed or remain in the background. The findings of the study of Varberg open up for further reflections about democratic implications of the use of organisational categories, that often, when they are taken on-board, are perceived as natural and neutral, are valued because they decrease “noise” and give impetus for municipal development. Another side of the use of categories, however, is about what questions, issues and perspectives that are sorted out and excluded through such processes of categorisations and what actor groups in society are not allowed to make their voices heard and to influence such change processes.

    Kommunerna och demosproblemet: En analys av principerna bakom sophämtningsavgifterna2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    English Title: Municipalities and the problem of Demos - An analysis of the principles behind the refuse collection fees.

    This is a bachelor’s thesis with the aim to study how different input variables e.g. the number of collections and the municipality´s costs may form the refuse collection fee. But also other input variables may affect some parts of the refuse collection fee like the democratic influence or the value of the real estate.

    Especially the relationship between permanent residents and the non-permanent residents fee are studied.

    The democratic view is considered, as a property owner in a Swedish municipality not automatically is allowed to vote, unless the person is a permanent resident of that particular municipality. If the citizen owns property in many municipalities, it will become impossible to have a full democratic influence in any municipalities but one -The municipality where he or she lives the majority if his time.

    The analysis shows that the relative value of the real estate surprisingly has some impact on the refuse collection fee which is proven to be statistically significant.

    Leksaker och CE-märkningar: det mobila ansvaret2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report examines the organization and distribution of responsibility for toys. Toys are one of many product categories to which the regulation of CE-marking applies. CE-marking in turn is part of the EU program for product safety of the Single Market, called The New Approach. Hence, by following the responsibility distribution for toys it is possible to analyze how the New Approach and the EU organizes responsibility. The report concludes that there is not one single actor responsible for toys placed on the market. Moreover, by the specific way of organizing markets that the New Approach prescribes, responsibility is not only distributed among several organizations, but also rather diffused.

    The Economic Lives of Students: the Relation between Economic and Educational Capital at Different Places in the Landscape of Swedish Higher Education2018Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    At the same time as the number of students in Swedish higher education has dramatically increased during the last 25 years the economic inequalities in society at large has widened, thereby increasingly reaching into the life of the average student. Yet there is little knowledge on the economic lives of Swedish students: where in the educational landscape is the situation particularly dire and for which students are the financial means scarce – or abundant.

    The Swedish student aid system is perceived to be generous: all students have access to it. As a consequence there is a widespread assumption in the public and scientific discourse that there are no real financial barriers surrounding higher education. However, the public financial arrangement includes substantial private co-funding. Apart from a minor grant the public means comes in the form of loans.

    In this paper the distribution of different modes of study financing (study loans, wage labour, own and inherited wealth, etc.) is analysed and related to the distribution of the formal prerequisites for entering higher education (grades and/or results from aptitude tests). Thereby the paper sheds light onto the material preconditions for acquiring meritocratic goods in a social democratic welfare regime.

    Pierre Bourdieu’s theories serve at the theoretical point of departure. What is the importance of economic capital – the dominant form of capital in capitalist societies – for the accumulation of educational (and cultural) capital? Datasets from Statistics Sweden, covering all students in Swedish higher education, are utilized to answer the research questions.

    Data availability, reusability, and analytic reproducibility: evaluating the impact of a mandatory open data policy at the journal Cognition2018In: Royal Society Open Science, E-ISSN 2054-5703, Vol. 5, no 8, article id 180448Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Access to data is a critical feature of an efficient, progressive and ultimately self-correcting scientific ecosystem. But the extent to which in-principle benefits of data sharing are realized in practice is unclear. Crucially, it is largely unknown whether published findings can be reproduced by repeating reported analyses upon shared data ('analytic reproducibility'). To investigate this, we conducted an observational evaluation of a mandatory open data policy introduced at the journal Cognition. Interrupted time-series analyses indicated a substantial post-policy increase in data available statements (104/417, 25% pre-policy to 136/ 174, 78% post-policy), although not all data appeared reusable (23/ 104, 22% pre-policy to 85/136, 62%, post-policy). For 35 of the articles determined to have reusable data, we attempted to reproduce 1324 target values. Ultimately, 64 values could not be reproduced within a 10% margin of error. For 22 articles all target values were reproduced, but 11 of these required author assistance. For 13 articles at least one value could not be reproduced despite author assistance. Importantly, there were no clear indications that original conclusions were seriously impacted. Mandatory open data policies can increase the frequency and quality of data sharing. However, suboptimal data curation, unclear analysis specification and reporting errors can impede analytic reproducibility, undermining the utility of data sharing and the credibility of scientific findings.

    Design and Investigation of a Decision Support System for Public Policy Formulation2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The ultimate aim of support for public policy decision making is to develop ways of facilitating policymaking that can create policies that are consistent with the preferences of policymakers and stakeholders (such as an increase in economic growth, the reduction of social inequalities, and improvements to the environment), and that are at the same time based on the available knowledge and evidential information.

    Using the design science research methodology, an iterative design process was followed to build and evaluate a research artefact in the form of an analytical method that is also operationalised as a decision support system (DSS) – in order to facilitate the problem analysis, the impact assessment and the decision evaluation activities carried out at the policy formulation stage of the policymaking process. The DSS provides a web-based, user-friendly interface for two main software modules: (i) a tool for modelling and simulation of policy scenarios; and (ii) a tool for multi-criteria evaluation of policy decisions. The target end-users of the DSS tools are policymakers, the support staff of politicians, policy analysts and researchers within governmental departments and parliaments at the various institutional levels of the European Union.

    The proposed model-based decision support approach integrates systems thinking, problem structuring methods and multi-criteria decision analysis, in what can be described as a ‘sense-making’ approach. A new policy-oriented quantitative problem structuring method is introduced in this research, the ‘labelled causal mapping’ method, which aims to reduce the cognitive overload involved in representing complex mental models using system dynamics simulation modelling in order to facilitate knowledge representation and system analysis. One contribution of this work is an object-oriented implementation of a prototype tool for systems modelling and simulation of policy decision situations based on the labelled causal mapping method. The method provides a basis for further computational decision analysis. We proposed criteria models and data formats for common (generic) policy appraisal, and a preference elicitation method for in-depth decision evaluation based on the results of scenario simulation and the preferences of decision makers and stakeholder groups.

    The artefact evaluation clarifies how well the proposed approach and the DSS tool prototype support a solution to the problem and the extent to which the outcomes in two policy analysis use cases are useful in terms of output analysis and knowledge synthesis.

    The contributions of this research to theory and practice were articulated based on the design knowledge obtained through an iterative design process, notably the emergence of the concepts of transparency and intelligibility in policymodelling, (i.e., the need for explicit and interpretable models that can provide justification of a specific decision).

    SENSE4US Policy Modelling and Simulation Tool: Evaluation Use Case: Finland’s 2015 Asylum Seekers CrisisIn: Cybernetics and systems, ISSN 0196-9722, E-ISSN 1087-6553Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A key challenge for policy planning and risk assessment in governmental institutions is to ensure that relevant information, expertise and knowledge are fully integrated and taken into account during the policy process. A systems thinking approach can help gathering and organizing the necessary policy intelligence and involving a diverse range of stakeholders. This study is done as part of a design-science research (DSR) project to build and evaluate a new systems tool for structuring of public policy problems and the design of policy options to be used by policy makers, analysts and researchers in governmental institutions and parliaments. The study aims at evaluation of the tool to establish its utility and efficacy for achieving its stated purpose and assess the end-user benefits. That is performed through application of the tool to analysis of a real public policy problem, Finnish government’s action in response to the rapidly growing numbers of asylum seekers entering Finland in recent years. The resulting simulation model allows designing a pathway for immigration policy that aims to mitigate the resulting problems.

    Consolidation of democracy in South Korea?2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although South Korea has accomplished a democratic transition, democraticconsolidation has not been achieved. The study investigates this notion on thebasis of criteria of democratic consolidation, how the presidents have fulfilledtheir promises on the deepening of democracy and how the Articles in the1987 Constitution on democracy have been implemented. What developmentssupport and disapprove this notion? The interaction between domestic politicsand the implementation of the Constitution during the presidents’ five yearterms in office is analyzed. Great consideration is put on the Confucian impacton politics and the short period of implementing democracy.
